Course Description

Specialized systems by nature can be very challenging for penetration testers. They can use proprietary operating systems and file systems, and may require advanced reverse engineering and sandbox analysis. However, specialized systems are also very susceptible when it comes to weaknesses and vulnerabilities. In this course, you'll learn how to identify common attacks and vulnerabilities against specialized systems, including mobile systems and Internet of Things devices. You'll also explore common vulnerabilities, including data storage system vulnerabilities, management interface vulnerabilities, vulnerabilities related to virtual environments, and vulnerabilities related to containerized workloads. This course is one of a collection that helps prepare learners for the CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-002) certification exam.
